DSR Performance Launches 1150HP Power House Crate Engine

DSR Performance Launches 1150 Horsepower Pump Gas Crate Engine

A brainchild of DSR Performance and A.J. Berge, co-crew chief of the DSR Drag Paks and owner of HEMI Tuner Performance, the team set out to create a GEN III HEMI based crate engine that's durable for multiple applications. The DSR 1150 was designed for enthusiasts, weekend drag racers, and custom car builder looking to take their Restomod projects to the next level. The DSR 1150 has superb driving manners while producing mind-blowing performance.  It was a match made in horsepower heaven when we got the call to be apart of this project.
